About Sonora Resort

Nestled in a Pacific Archipelago off the coast of British Columbia, Sonora Resort is a jewel amid one of Canada’s most alluring, pristine environments. Accessible only by sea or air, Sonora offers a rare alchemy of secluded wilderness and opulent comfort.

A proud member of the Relais & Châteaux family – an association of the world’s finest hoteliers, chefs and restauranteurs selected for having a truly unique character – Sonora captures the essence of the Pacific Northwest. The passion of our people, spirit of our natural surroundings and the exemplary service we offer are all experienced within 5 stars of pure luxury.

Eagles await our guests perched on towering trees as the sea lions surf the tidal currents and relax in the kelp beds. Every day, a range of exhilarating outdoor adventures beckon from thrilling eco-adventure tours to world-renowned fishing and watching Grizzly bears and Orcas in their natural habitat.

Quieter moments can be appreciated in the mineral pools of Island Currents Spa or simply from our spacious private villas, multi-room suites or lodge rooms. Sink into sumptuous linens and cozy goose-down duvets or draw a deep bath to ponder the spectacular ocean views.

Reminisce on the day’s adventures in the Tyee Dining Room, where local ingredients are prepared by accomplished chefs and paired with world-class wines. Savour freshly-caught seafood, organically grown produce and desserts that will tempt even the most discerning palates.

Remote yet accessible, Sonora is a 50-minute flight from Vancouver. It’s the ultimate getaway where bespoke adventures await.
